You may notice some inconsistency in the body of this micro car from image to image, which would be quite confusing without all of the information. Essentially, this concept car by DFKI RIC has the capacity to pivot on its undercarriage, enabling it to look like it's driving sideways.

The motivation behind the design of this compact car was to deal with the overwhelming congestion of urban streets, largely due to the abundance of motor vehicles. Accommodating just a pair of people, the EOssc2 eco-friendly automobile has a comfortable cabin with generous windows; however, it's finest feature is this flexibility that enables it to weave through traffic jams and park just about anywhere. The EO Smart Connecting Car 2 may just be the vehicle of the future.
